Do you want a relaxing cabin vacation in the woods, but your partner wants to go somewhere with action and fun? Well, with Broken Bow Waterfront Rentals, you can have both! Our gorgeous riverfront cabins are a 20-minute drive from Hoctatown, where you can find everything from outdoor adventure to wonderful dining experiences and nightlife. We’ve gathered a few of our favorite things to do in the area below!
The Maze of Hochatown and Escape Room
Looking for some outdoor fun for the whole family? Head over to the Maze of Hoctatown, which features a 29,000-square-foot wooden maze, complete with a game card for certain Hotspots and Towers. There are also escape rooms, where you work as a team to unlock the mystery.
Broken Bow Lake
Tourists come from miles around to enjoy one of the largest man-made lakes in Oklahoma. Broken Bow Lake covers 14,000 acres and is over 22 miles long– plenty of room for swimming, fishing, boating, kayaking, or even jet skis! If you didn’t bring your equipment, there are several kayak and canoe rental places in the area, and Beavers Bend Marina offers a wide range of boat and jet ski rentals by the hour.
Hiking in Beavers Bend State Park
Whether you are a veteran hiker or more of a casual stroller– Beavers Bend State Park has something for everyone. A great spot to go hiking and bird watching, you may even see some wildlife such as turkey, deer, and even bald eagles! Hiking trails vary in length and challenge level, so check out the trails you want to hike ahead of time. Enjoy gorgeous views of the Mountain Fork River, especially during the autumn months when the leaves begin to change.
World Class Fishing
Broken Bow lake and Mt Fork River are famously good fishing spots year round! The lake hosts several different fish, such as flathead catfish and sunfish. The closer to the dam, the colder and deeper the water attracts small and largemouth bass. Mt Fork River is more famous for its trout fishing and is especially popular with fly fishers. If you are worried about going home empty-handed, consider hiring a local fishing guide to help you hone your craft (while finding the best local fishing spots.)
Southern food and live music at Abendigos
Located in Hochatown, this restaurant and music venue quickly became one of the most popular spots in town. Enjoy delicious southern food and craft cocktails on one of the Abendigos decks. In the summertime, they feature live music.
Abendigos is far from the only dining option in the area. There is also the Grateful Head Pizza Oven & Taproom, a delightfully whimsical spot with delicious pizza and local beers on tap. For local comfort food, try the Soggy Bottom restaurant or the Blue Rooster. With so many options, you will never be bored with your vacation dining choices.
Wine & Beer Tasting
What is a vacation without a little wine? Those looking to taste local Broken Bow OK wines will not be disappointed by what the area vineyards have to offer, such as Knotted Rope Winery, Girls Gone Wine, Vojai’s Winery, and Fish Tales Winery. Many of these locations offer patios and firepits, and all of them feature delicious local wine tastings.
If you prefer the grain to the grape, consider some of the local breweries. There is Mt Fork River Brewery, which brews its craft beers with water from the Mt. Fork River. There is also Beavers Bend Brewery. Both locations feature a rotating selection of local craft beers, as well as a delicious food menu.
Talimena Scenic Byway
Especially popular when the leaves change, the Talimena Scenic Byway is a hidden treasure. It features breathtaking views of the Ouachita National Forest and Mountain range. If you want to do more than drive, the Scenic Byway features 22 scenic pull-outs and hiking trails.
